Bassist Eddie Barton is the newest addition to the metalcore band Diecast. In order to better get to know this new member, Eddie recently gave PureGrainAudio a bit of his time to talk about the 5-string Shecter Elite Bass you’ll see him rocking on stage. Read on for details.

What one piece of equipment do you use to obtain your signature sound?
Eddie: My Shecter elite 5-string bass.

What about it makes it so important to you?
Eddie: The Shecter is extremely versatile! I like many different sounds and tones. I don’t like to limit myself to one specific sound. I like options!

What are the major pros and cons?
Eddie: The pros: you have options at your fingers, even if your limited with your amp sound (like me). You can change your tone from the bass not the amp. Granted you can do that with any axe but, I like the way Shecter pulls it off. Plus it’s affordable! You don’t have to break the bank to get a great sound. The bass also has a great weight and feel to me! It just kinda feels like it was made for me!

How long have you used this piece of equipment and would you ever change it?
Eddie: I’ve used this bass for about 5 to 6 years now and love every minute of it. Yes I would change it. I’m always down for change. Like I said, I like options.

Any final thoughts or comments on the gear?
Eddie: In a perfect world I would love to rock a custom Shecter 4 string active bass with purple to black sunburst. A Mesa M6 carbine head and a 8×10 Mesa powerhouse cab! Ahhhhhh sooooooo sweeeeeeet!
